Eight MSOE students traveled to London to investigate and learn about the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) in late May 2019. The trip was offered in conjunction with a new nursing/humanities elective course at MSOE that examines worldwide health, history, health care delivery systems and practices.  While abroad, they participated in lectures with a London nurse practitioner, toured the Florence Nightingale Museum and participated in medical walks at the Royal College of Physicians-London.

Dr. Victoria Carlson-Oehlers, nursing; Dr. Jeff LaMack ’97, biomedical engineering; and Dr. Bernie Cohen ’71, MSOE Regent, were academic facilitators and guides on the trip. Megan Cohan, biomolecular engineering; Sarah Grossman, biomedical engineering; Katherine Heidingsfelder, biomedical engineering; Shannon Medvecz, electrical engineering; Shelbi Schoenfeld, electrical engineering; Alex Solis, computer engineering; Jennifer Vanden Bosch, nursing; and biomedical engineering alumna Rachael DiGrazia ’17 made the trip.
